    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

Low Balled Wth!



Hey you all can someone please explain this to me. I received my infamous brown folder today and reading it just pissed me off. So it states that it was up for special review October 2013 I was awarded new percentage of 100% WITH OVERALL PERCENTAGE OF 100% effective July 2014. Then it goes on to say that YOUR COMPENSATION PAYMENT WILL CONTINUE UNCHANGED. can someone please tell me why my rate of pay hasn't changed as it goes on to state that my disability has kept me from maintaining sufficient work. I have attached some of what they sent me about my claim. Please if you can help explain it would be greatly appreciated.

I was thinking it could be because I have two claims open still for dependency and cubital tunnel with UI.

If you were not already 100%, then you will get paid at the 100% rate. That is the VA's law not ours, so you have nothing to worry about. Now if we are already 100% for other disabilities combined, and then this 50% was increased to 100%, then you will still get paid at the current 100%. Others can chime in on this one. Good luck

va is so fixated on denials even when they approve, they sound like theyre denying.. the doubletalk and manupulating of words and sentences is in thier DNA. How hard would it be for them to just say.. YOU GOT A 100 PERCENT .. CONGRATS !!

Congrats on getting the 100%!

However I don't like that they are stealing your retro pay. When you filed in October 2013 you already had the diagnosis and the service connection. Did you send them any statement from yourself detailing your symptoms that would fit a 100% rating? Did you have any medical documentation from before that detailed any symptoms that would fit a 100% rating?

If so then I feel like they should pay you back date to October 2013.

I feel the same way Navywife, yes I sent evidence in showing I had worsened but they said they went by what the C&P doctor noted that I was stable for a couple of months then quickly went into a downward spiral quickly. So she said that it has only worsened recently.
